After installation new printer driver all client computer errors

Hi- I am new to this site. I am have no place to go that is why I really need your help.
My problem is that everytime I install one new shared printer on the server, I will receive complaints from the users that ALL printers are not working and needed to be reinstalled. Vista users will have the option to reinstall all the network printer drivers while XP users just needs to be deleted and re-added. Take note, this is for all printers on each users/computer. My printer server is windows 2003 standard edition with 4gb of RAM. I've been researching all over the net but no one can give me a good answer. Hope you guys can help!

    Tried checking the event viewer and also check the print spooler services. I am running this server in a domain. I checked the groups policy and haven't seen anything mysterious. You guys know any thing in groups policy that might cause this issue?

    have you checked the logs on the server ?
    have you checked the print spooler service on the server ?
    the most likely cause is some sort of group policy config error.
    Are you running a domain or is your network peer-peer ?

I can't install my Brother MFC6490CW printer onto

All these three methods involve some specific code in the printer drivers both in Print server and clients.

Not all printers will have drivers that will support all 3 ways of using the printer. It appears that not all printer drivers, written for Windows Vista. If you can't get your network printer, please try the following steps to bypass the LPT redirection. 1. Install the Vista printer driver on your Windows Vista computer.
2. During installation, you'll be prompted to connect the printer to your computer. Choose the option to proceed with installation without connecting the printer.
3. After installation completes, open the Printers wizard from the Windows Vista Control Panel.
4. Right click on the entry for the new printer, and choose Properties.
5. Go to the Ports tab.
6. Click Add Port, select Local Port, then click New Port.
7. For the port name, enter the network path and share name of your printer ("\\TheirComputer\TheirPrinter1").
8. Click OK, and verify that the new port is selected.
9. Click OK to close the printer properties.

When I start my computer I get a error: Error in


Based on the folders (spool/drivers) that sounds like the error is coming from a printer driver. Try uninstalling the last printer you installed and see if that resolves the issue.

If not, you can go into the Start Menu, under Accessories and System Tools and find the find the System Restore. When you installed the printer it should have created a Restore Point. Do a restore to that Restore Point, and it will take your systems registry and drivers back to the way they were before you did the driver update.

Once you have gotten rid of the error, by uninstalling ro restoring, then you may want to check the web site of the printer's manufacturer to see if there may be a new or corrected driver for the printer, and install that one rather than the one you used before.

Says I have no cam its built in how do I fix this problem when vista no longer see's it

I have dealt with this situation before on a clients laptop. You need to go into the device manager and verify its still installed or contains an error. If it shows that there is an error, you to the HP support site and download a new driver for your laptop's webcam. Installing a new version of the driver will help. If your computer doesn't know it has a webcam and puts the hardware under erroroness other in the device manager, the same solution applies. Contact me directly if you need more help.

Printer won't print anything.

Try to uninstall the drivers and turn off the printer. Then install the drivers back on and turn the printer back on. And then make sure this printer is set as default.

Unable to use printer over network with Server 2003 64Bit

Probably the best and easiest solution for your problem would be to buy an EDIMAX USB-Ethernet print server, or something equivalent. I have several of these running on the network at work. They're easy to setup and they work great.
